Have questions?
We’ve got answers.

5G Edge is a mobile edge computing platform available for businesses and organizations. By integrating compute and storage services at the public 5G or LTE network edge, or collocated on-premises with a private wireless network, 5G Edge helps Verizon customers bring to market increasingly transformative use cases that were previously untenable or impossible.

Multi-access edge computing (MEC) is a network architecture concept that enables cloud computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of any network. Mobile edge computing provides both an IT service environment and cloud-computing capabilities at the edge of the mobile network, within the radio access network (RAN) and in closer proximity to mobile subscribers, enterprises and other organizations.

With this new edge computing architecture, developers can build applications for mobile end users and wireless devices, with low latency. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for businesses and organizations of all types and sizes, including next-generation artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), automated vehicles, real-time monitoring and control, and so much more.

5G Edge can provide:

  • A fully integrated network and computing environment
  • Ease in performing data analytics locally
  • Consistently lower latency for workloads and applications (e.g., closed-loop control systems, autonomous machines, robotics, AR/VR, IoT performance tracking)

5G Edge private MEC helps support customer data and application sovereignty.

5G Edge could also deliver services specific to an environment and industry, such as oil and mining operations, manufacturing plants, hospitals, universities, public safety and other government facilities, sports arenas, and business campuses. Local computing could be particularly beneficial for organizations with a large number of connected devices. ThingSpace provides the tools, resources and support to help you accelerate development of edge devices and get them to market faster.

Expand opportunities, capabilities and sources of revenue
Industries across the board could create more agile, efficient and proactive practices, realize new opportunities for value capture and creation, and deliver customer experiences with the following benefits:

  • Low end-to-end network latencies resulting in fast application response times
  • Reduction in transport bandwidth cost
  • Increased data localization and sovereignty, and better analytics
  • Streamlined, more power-efficient end devices
  • Context-aware quality of experience (QoE) enhancements

Improve performance.
Ultrahigh speed and low latency are requirements for many transformational projects, and 5G Edge is designed to help reduce application response times and increase performance. Private wireless deployments can help reduce response times and increase performance even further.

Activate near real-time data.
Data is the new differentiator—the faster and better you can harness, process, analyze and use it, the bigger the advantage. Data is gathered and acted on closer to where it’s created or used to help enable contextually aware applications and more-efficient operations.

Align mobile and cloud strategies.
5G Edge works with connectivity and device management solutions that can help enable the alignment of mobile and cloud strategies.

Realize the full potential of the IoT.
The high speed and low latency of 5G Edge can help support the rapid expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT)—particularly mission-critical communications. 5G Edge can also help address IoT challenges such as device energy usage and battery life. Verizon Private 5G Network helps support massive IoT deployments.

Enhance security and reliability.
Resources at the edge and on-premises means Verizon customers can localize data, which can help them improve security and better execute on data management strategies. Private wireless deployments can help provide even higher levels of security, keeping all critical data on premises.

We believe many industries could benefit from 5G Edge. Here are just a few of our top picks:

Distribution and Supply Chain
Global distribution and supply chain leaders could benefit from near real-time supply chain solutions that deliver end-to-end visibility and control from production through consumption.

Online gaming companies could offer subscription-based gaming services, while enabling immersive experiences on mobile devices running on 5G networks.

Media and Entertainment
Advancements in computer vision along with machine learning have given rise to more interactive and convenient fan experiences in venues of all sizes, while providing venue owners and operators more visibility and intelligence thanks to data-driven decision-making as well as near real-time monitoring and analytics. As a result, better crowd management, accelerated ticketing and cashierless payment options are now available.

Retailers could use 5G Edge to implement granular product tracking, create immersive experiences, automate points of sale (POS), drive interactive signage and smart package sorting, and gather insights about in-the-moment customer behavior.

Financial Services
5G Edge could enable AI, near real-time connectivity and other leading-edge technologies to fight fraud, power humanized assistants, speed up loan transactions, shorten settlement cycles, and accelerate market forecasting, buying and selling.

5G Edge may have broad application in healthcare solutions. They could include delivering deep visibility into the pharmaceutical supply chain, supporting faster, more-detailed diagnostics, enabling robotic and remote surgery and near real-time patient monitoring, and providing navigation for visually impaired individuals.

From improved 3D modeling, maintenance and supply chain management to automated vehicles, robots, digital twins, materials tracking and quality assurance processes, 5G Edge could help catalyze widespread transformation across the manufacturing ecosystem.

Transportation and Automotive
5G Edge could support smart dock technologies to help improve safety, security and productivity, as well as enhance quality of travel, and improve tracking and auditing of vehicles, packages and people. 5G Edge could also play a transformative role in the field of autonomous vehicles and C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle to Everything) applications for passenger, vehicle, road and pedestrian safety.

5G Ultra Wideband
Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband is paving the way for a new era of business innovations with ultra-fast speeds and low latency. 

Private carrier-grade deployments at the Verizon customer premises provide even lower latency and are complementary with other existing networking technologies.

Network density
Verizon 5G Edge is a mobile edge computing (MEC) platform. And MEC is all about moving computing and related infrastructure closer to the end user, so we’re building out service access points (SAPs) across our extensive network. Those SAPs, along with fiber, small-cell technology and other network densification efforts, help ensure that Verizon can support our customers’ next-generation application requirements. Private wireless network deployment solutions provide even more flexibility and availability.

Virtualization from core to edge
Having virtualized the core of its network, Verizon is taking significant steps forward in virtualizing the radio access network (RAN) edge and moving computing functionality to the edge of the network. This is what makes 5G Edge possible.

Security and quality of service (QoS)
5G Ultra Wideband embeds security protocols that help ensure Verizon customer user and development environments are secure, while managing the quality of your experiences based on user type or policy service levels. It’s a more secure, high-performance alternative to Wi-Fi.

Verizon 5G Edge Services
5G Edge Services is a unique platform that provides developers, Verizon customers and partners the tools to build and deploy edge applications across a distributed infrastructure, along with management capabilities for greater visibility and control. It utilizes an intuitive dashboard to easily manage and control performance of the MEC infrastructure as well as device connectivity and application deployment.
